I think this will work perfectly. It should be able to hold approximately 138 dice when completely full. I'll post some pics once I'm able to fill it up a bit more.

I know this will sound weird but have you thought about picture storage boxes?

Iris storage boxes are 4x6 and deep enough to hold 40 16mm dice and some sleeved cards. These boxes will also hold 60 sleeved cards easily. If not for storage, then for transportation for sure.

Plano really makes some very good options for board gamers. I only say Plano as this is my go to option in ease of picking up (I have yet to find a Walmart that does not carry them in the fishing isle all year long) and price (with the popular 3700 series running less than $4.).

Now finding a nice carry all for these Plano boxes becomes a bit harder to find and are costly. While Walmart does carry the bags (such as Spiderwire bags that will hold 4 of the 3700 Plano boxes) you are looking to pay around $30+.

The bottom line with Plano is that they have so many options. Put together with the cost and ease of walking into a store and picking one up makes Plano storage boxes the almost perfect go to for gamers.

I did not mention online as I like to be able to walk into a store and bring home my Plano boxes as I have games that need to be separated for ease of set up and protection carrying to and from. More important is that I am able to see myself which Plano box will work best for said game as there are a lot to pick from.

What have you guys come up with for secret deck dice storage for tournaments? Is there similar type boxes that are non-see-through?

Truth be told the Plano 3600 may be the way to go for tournaments because you are bringing a deck already put together. As for keeping it secret, I would say put the 3600 in a sling bag or back pack type bag.

Cost wise the Plano 3600 is going to set you back...just about $3.00...LOL. I use the Plano 3700, one each for each color, gray, yellow, red, and blue (and one extra to hold the two base sets with instructions and tokens.). The 3600 is going to do the same thing just on a smaller scare which will hold your cards, dice, and tokens for your tournament. I also sleeve all my cards and use a hard case on top of being sleeved for any/all character/location cards. Both the 3600 and 3700 will have plenty of room for sleeved and hard case cards with the 3600 being a better option for just tournament play seeing as you use the same cards/dice all tournament.

What makes the 4700 great is that you don't need a separate box for different colors. Everything fits in it on one layer so you don't need to pick through dice to find the ones you need.

Hi, would love to see a photo posted before jumping in and buying one! In general I have had good luck with plano but this is a situation where an example would be good.

As promised. Fits every die from Awakenings with a little room to spare.

I use Plano 4700 boxes, each slot will hold 4 dice. However, they are in there just a bit too snug, might need to get a pliers to retrieve them without removing the wall dividers.

Don't divide every section. I only divided the bottom into 9 sections. Each fits 8 dice with plenty of room to pluck it out with your fingers.it also makes it easy to sort because their are about 8 of each neutral/hero/villian red/blue/yellow dice.

I've heard these types of boxes scratch up the dice.
